Events and Campaigns

The Smart Commute program regularly offers campaigns and events to promote sustainable travel.

Winter Commute Month


'Warm up' your commute during March by exploring walking, rolling, sharing a ride or taking transit! If you're working from home, telework reduces driving trips too! Be sure to log your sustainable travel and see how far you can go!

Bike to Work Day/Bike Month 

June is Bike Month and kicks-off with Bike to Work Day on May 30th, 2022, in encouraging everyone to get cycling, learn new skills or simply have fun and connect with new people! Celebrate by riding your bike for your commute to work, when taking a break, running errands in your neighbourhood, or riding your friends, family or others!

Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area regions, cities and local municipalities along with Smart Commute are hosting Bike Month and invite you to login and register with the Smart Commute tool!

For events, check your local Smart Commute office and Bike Month websites. 

Smart Commute Month - September 2022!

Participate in Smart Commute Month by using our online tool to explore your transportation options, match your trips with others and track the impact of your travel choices. Rethink the way you commute and explore alternative ways of travelling. Try the 4 Rs of travel planning: reduce, re-time, re-route and re-mode your trip.



Tell us how you travel! Tuesday, September 6 to Friday, September 30, is Smart Commute Month. Smart Commute invites you to “Commute to your next adventure” if you are headed to work, school or another destination (shopping, errands, visiting, etc.) try a sustainable mode. As employees continue to travel to work, return to the office or continue to work from home (hybrid), Smart Commute is here to help with your travel options!

If you live or work in Durham Region, City of Hamilton or York Region, let us know whether you drive, carpool, take transit, walk, cycle, or roll. Fill out a two-minute questionnaire telling us how you get around and take a pledge to travel sustainably. You could win one of 21 gift cards or one of three grand prizes! There are three ways to win.

1. Take the questionnaire

2. Register on the Smart Commute Tool

3. Log a trip
